Does the other LDAP server have dc=com and two sub suffixes
dc=one,dc=com and dc=two,dc=com? Each with their own "real" database?
Thanks for taking the time to reply, Richard...
The server with the real databases has two suffixes: "dc=one,dc=com"
and "dc=two,dc=com". "dc=com" doesn't exist. Both suffixes have
databaes and work if I query them individually.
I wouldn't be so frustrated if nothing was working, but the fact that
searching with a base of "dc=com" for a UID that appears in
"dc=one,dc=com" works but searching for a UID that appears in
"dc=two,dc=com" doesn't is what's really bugging me. I went so far as
deleting the "dc=one,dc=com" link, but the Two link still doesn't
work, even if it's the only one. The root ACIs on One and Two are
exactly the same (with the obvious changes for the different suffixes

It's difficult to say for sure without reviewing all of your configuration.
Anything semi-specific you'd be curious about?
